About: The first recording in the Folktunes collection is Cripple Creek, played on the open-backed five-stringed banjo in the clawhammer style. How learned: Martha Owen taught me this tune in the Summer of 2000 at the John C. Campbell Folk School. It was the first song I ever learned on Banjo. Chord Progression: G - C G / - - D G :// G - - - / - - D G ://

Traditional Celtic ballad Probably one of the most famous english folk songs, also known as 'Once I Had A Sweetheart', and has been a favourite of mine since I started guitar exercises in the 70s.
